Empowering Healthier Lives through Government Healthcare Schemes
Sometimes during a chronic illness, patients find it hard to pay their medical expenses. That’s why we, at Healthway Medical, are willing to help resolve this situation by providing affordable healthcare and adult vaccination clinic for the community. We have programs such as the Community Health Assist Scheme and MediSave to help people with illnesses and their families understand their treatment options, find the financial support they need and apply for benefits.
Empowering Healthier Lives Through CHAS
Healthway Medical is proud to be a participating CHAS GP and dental clinic that provides affordable and quality healthcare. Since 1 November 2019, all Singaporeans are benefiting from CHAS. It’s extended to cover chronic conditions for all Singaporeans, with the introduction of the CHAS Green tier, in addition to the existing Blue and Orange tiers.
The Blue and Orange tiers enjoy an increase in subsidies for complex chronic illnesses while Orange tiers get additional subsidies for common illnesses.
Merdeka Generation cardholders will also receive subsidies under CHAS.
Here’s a comprehensive guide to what benefits are available, depending on your circumstances and eligibility. For more information, visit our CHAS accreditedclinics today!
